Last night my hubby planned a date and took me to see Julie & Julia. The movie was entertaining enough, but I loved what the character Julie did with a blog. Well maybe it was the concept of what she did. For those that haven't seen the movie, Julie decided that she was going to go through Julia Childs "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" cookbook in a year and make all the recipes and blog about her experience. I was thinking about how I could incorporate something like that into my blog. I can hold my own in the kitchen, but I don't have a passion for cooking like some of the great chefs I know -- (Victoria Woodward and my dad) I love books, scrapbooking, photography, traveling and want to incorporate one of these into my blog -- Any thoughts? Suggestions? Comments are needed! Even if I don't know you, I still welcome your opinion!
...the more I appreciate my parents. While growing up my dad was a hard working man. (sometimes a little to hard working because I didn't get to see him) and my mom was a SAHM extraordinaire! She took care of everything and had time to be the "lunch lady" at my school and also be the treasurer for the athletic club. For those of you that know me, I have always been quite independent. As I get older I want to be around my parents more and more. We always have a great time when we are together and the support and guidance they have given me (which was not always appreciated when I was younger) has caused me to be the person I am today. So why not take time to celebrate those people who have loved you unconditionally today! I love you mom & dad! You are the best!
Right now I feel like I am in a holding pattern and I am just circling around and around waiting to land so I can get my luggage....Do you ever feel like day to day life is like Groundhog Day? Wake up, take the dog out, work, sometimes eat lunch, work, eat dinner, take the dog out, check email or some social networking site, check work email one last time, maybe watch tv, clean something, take the dog out and then go to bed. Here and there getting a run or workout in. So instead of complaining about what I wish would change I am going to write down things I am grateful for today 1. New Jumper Cables and the Roadside Assistance Guy 2. Helpful Husband 3. Supportive Mom & Dad 4. Cutest Dog Ever 5. Job 6. Making a new friend 7. The post office 8. Office Supplies 9. Considerate Board Members 10. Refreshing Ice Water
I am content but love to learn new things. I love my husband because he is always challenging himself and for his patience with me, even when I don't have any with him. I love my dog. On December 26th we welcomed our new little sweetheart! I love my life (most days) :)
